I will never really grasp fans sometimes. Talent can play. Talent can coach. Carr and Claiborne have talent. Kiffin has talent.
Are you willing to go on record with a prediction they can't play in his system and he can't coach their talent?
This is not the guy I wanted. He's not even my 2nd or 3rd choice. Then again I didn't want Ryan at all. But I'm not going to pretend he can't coach in the NFL and that talented players can't play. Systems are not that specialized that smart players with talent can't work.
Bravo my friend. Am I the only one that cracks up while reading some of these posts from our fan base trying to come off as insiders with direct knowledge of the inner workings of Valley Ranch? Or, those that try to compare what a coordinator did in college and assuming that he will not succeed in the NFL? Or, that he's too old, yet would jump on the chance to hire a DC that's even 3 years older? I could go on for days here. Like you said - TALENT can excel in any scheme. Great coaches have crapped out more knowledge abou the game than most of us will ever possess. This guy is a guru, plain and simple.
